I’ve been a White House correspondent for 27 years and covered five presidents. AMA.
UPDATE: Hey Reddit, I'm going to wrap up now. Many thanks for all the great questions!
Hi, I’m Ken Walsh. I’m the White House correspondent for U.S. News & World Report. I’ve covered Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and, today, Barack Obama. I was in the small group of reporters in Berlin when Reagan urged the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” I spent many days traveling the world with Bush the father, who considered himself first and foremost a foreign-policy president. I covered Clinton’s high and lows from his two campaign victories to the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
I have a new book, just published, called “Prisoners of the White House: The Isolation of America’s Presidents and the Crisis of Leadership.” It’s my sixth book: Amazon
